Thirty days. It starts on October 2nd and closes on May 7th. The Basketball League has formalized the calendar of the regular season 2022-2023, the one that will decide the grid for the championship sprint. The appetizer is therefore rich and abundant. As always. There are many challenges that will ignite the imagination of the fans. Starting with the eternal challenge, the one between Ettore Messina’s Milan champion of Italy and sergio Scariolo’s Virtus Bologna. There will be four derbies, between Italy and Europe, to begin with: 11 November and 13 April in Europe, while in the league the Italian derby will be staged on 2 January in Bologna and 19 March in Milan.

Dates and curiosities

Juicy as always, the Christmas shift. In fact, in Santo Stefano the Milan-Varese derby and the classic Pesaro-Bologna and Venice – Sassari stand out. But even the first day foresees a start with a bang with Milan-Brescia: for Mitrou-Long, who spent the summer at Olimpia, immediately the heart challenge against the ambitious Leonessa of the patron Ferrari who re-signed Della Valle, the mvp of the last championship. The two newly promoted Verona and Scafati, who were missing from Serie A respectively from 2001-02 and 2007-08, will make their first home debut with Brindisi and the second in Venice. Speaking of challenges of the heart: the Milanese Tonut will face Venice on October 23 at the Taliercio, while the new Venetian Spissu will meet Sassari on December 26 in Mestre. From Wednesday 15 to Sunday 19 February 2023 the best 8 teams at the end of the regular season will compete as usual in the Final Eight that will award the Italian Cup (the venue is still to be defined). However, the playoff format remains unchanged: the quarterfinals and semifinals will be played at the best of the 5 races and the final will be played at the best of the 7 races. The dates will be made official based on whether or not Italian teams participate in the final stages of the European club competitions.


Meanwhile, the president of the Basketball League Umberto Gandini starts from the visibility to be given to the product, or the new TV contract just signed with Eleven Sports for the next three years: “This novelty will cause some inconvenience, a bit like success with the transition from Sky to Dazn for football. A migration of subscribers will be needed. Then we still have two pillars to be defined: the pay broadcaster and here is one of Eleven’s responsibilities and how the free product will be usable. This is a situation that the League reserves the right to define after the pay framework will be completed “. The number one of the Basketball League then moves on to the Milan-Virtus rivalry, but not only: “They are the most important teams in our basketball, they return to the Euroleague and having two representatives can only be good for the movement. There is rivalry and the interest that is becoming a national theme but, although I realize a great rivalry is part of history, we can count on many realities, such as Venice, Brescia, Tortona, Sassari, etc. .. The technical level is growing not only for the two battleships, but also for the other teams “. The next Italian Cup, on the other hand, does not yet have a venue: “We already have ideas. We would like to take the product to new places, but we must have adequate facilities and a receptive territory. I am confident that by the end of September I will be able to announce where we will play”.
